Marine
Issued at 248pm EST Tuesday Feb 27 2024 Small Craft Should Exercise Caution For Increasing Winds (SCEC) is headlined across the Straits of Florida for tonight. From synopsis, high pressure over the western North Atlantic extends westward into Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. This high will strengthen slightly tonight into Wednesday resulting in freshening east to southeast breezes. A frontal system associated with strong low pressure moving northeast into Ontario, Canada will lead to slackening breezes for Wednesday night, though, this front will stall along the North Gulf Coast. Strong high pressure builds in behind the front and slides east across the eastern U.S Thursday before moving into the western North Atlantic Thursday night. Therefore, another period of freshening east to southeast breezes is likely Thursday night through Saturday before slackening thereafter.

Climate
On this day in 1997, the daily record high temperature of 84F and the daily record warm low temperature of 77F were both recorded in Key West. Temperature records in February for Key West date back to 1873.
